Hi all. A guy at our local AT&T store said we could use our iPhones as GoPhones, so long as we did not want data.

Is this true? AT&T won't try to tack on a data plan when the SIM card tells their network what device I am using? I know this happens with Blackberries, so I am just wondering.

I have used my 3GS as a GoPhone for over a year. No problems. Just go to Settings>General> Network, and turn off Cellular Data.

Nice. Also found a How-to on modmyi in case simply turning the data off does not work.

Thanks. :)

Can you still use wifi if you have it set up this way?
